The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment
Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Such a challenge for me. I can be so flipping petty sometimes which doesn’t affect only me, it says something about God and to my friends. Can I agree with Paul? Can I honestly say that I am content in “whatever” situation I am in. No! But how do I do it? Verse 13 is a real encouragement, praise God it doesn’t rely on us! It’s God who strengthens us.
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say, “It is well, it is well with my soul.”
God help me.
